Apply for a Rainforest Journalism Fund Grant
The Rainforest Journalism Fund (RJF), launched in September 2018, represents a major investment in international environmental and climate reporting. Through the Pulitzer Center, the Rainforest Journalism Fund plans to support nearly 200 original reporting projects over the five years’ existence of the Fund. The Rainforest Journalism Fund supports reporting on tropical rainforests in the Amazon, Congo Basin, and Southeast Asia.
Applications for regional projects are independently reviewed by Advisory Committees, composed of experienced journalists, and are expected to propose projects related to tropical rainforests in each region.
